Spirit™ Adjustable Positioning System™ (APS™) Car Seat
US Patent # D636,190 S
Car Seat Safety Meets Complex Positioning! Columbia Medical has redefined the adaptive car seat industry with the launch of its new Spirit™ APS™ (Adjustable Positioning System) that features optional swing-away trunk and hip supports normally found only in complex wheelchair seating systems. The Spirit™ APS™ is designed for users between 25-130lbs., and up to 66 inches in height. It comes standard with features such as soft-padded head support, low profile sides to make transfers of passengers easier, plush machine-washable upholstery, 5-point harness for safety and a recline bar to provide optional recline (tilt). Also, installation is made easier as the vehicle shoulder belt can be used as the tether in most installations.
For users requiring additional positioning, the Spirit™ APS™ is the only car seat that offers swing-away trunk and hip supports that are individually adjustable and can be fitted exactly to the user's specifications. The support assemblies, along with the pads, can be ordered in various sizes to accommodate varying trunk and hip widths. The swing-away latch mechanisms enable a full 180 degree range so that they swing completely out of the way during transfers of the individual in and out of the seat.
The Spirit™ APS™ was designed to enhance the lives of children with special needs by providing a car seat for support and comfort.
